Butch Haller & The Chesterfield Ramblers

the best goddamned musician you have never heard of

he is a 90 something year old guitar player who wrote most of the songs you know

all stolen from him...made millions for the artists who ripped him off!!!

fought in 16 world wars for us all!!

Good audience recording that I made with Butch's kind permission. Someone had to capture this historic man on disc...finally! Quite a bit of audience chatter but the vocals are very clean and air conditioning noise every once in a while. Why do people go to a concert and pay their money and then talk the whole damn show through? What is the point? Bastards.

Thanks to Butch's permission, I was allowed to record the old bastard again. Very clean sound with some crowd noise. This is just a small collection from the 60000 or songs he wrote. This is from a great night of music featuring the 3tards. Ed the Sock and Liana K were hosts that night.
